As I recall Hunter provides a very nice, albeit not particularly useful, description of their songwriting approach when living in Larkspur in the Garcia ('72) remastered CD, with specific reference to them writing Deal and Loser on the same day.

Great album - probably my second favourite GD-related studio album, second only to Workingman's Dead.

Thanks for another brilliant post LiA.

Ah, I'd never seen the liner notes to that - so that would've been at the end of 1970.
(It was in mid-'71 when Garcia had to move to a new house.)

There could probably be a good compendium made of all the Hunter/Garcia descriptions of their songwriting process over the years. (Not that I'm about to do it!)
